Yesterday we handed out Thanksgiving baskets to 400 Ward One families at the Kelly Miller, LeDroit Park, Garfield Terrace and Cavalier apartments. They will have a complete holiday meal this year!
We also gave out hundreds of gift cards so families can buy their own Thanksgiving groceries at local markets.
One in four of our residents in Ward One lives at or below the poverty level. We are compelled to respond to this great need in our community.
Mayor Adrian Fenty, Bread for the City Executive Director George Jones and DC Housing Authority Director Michael Kelly partnered with me for the giveaway.
